LOGAN, Utah -

Utah State Head Coach Stew Morrill...

"Other than possibly being beat up, it's nice for us to have some practice time and some practice games but now it starts for real, and in a hurry. It's a PAC-12 team coming in here next weekend. It's been a long time since there's been a PAC-12 team here. I hope our fans will rally to that. It's a great opener - as great an opener as we've had since I've been here to have USC coming in here and the challenge of that. We'll try and get ready for that after a weekend off. We had last weekend off, we had Wednesday off and now we have another weekend off. These new rules are kind of interesting with lots of days off. Overall, we were better. We defended better, so we've made a little progress hopefully this past week and guys are understanding how important it is, hopefully. We had a chance to play everybody and that was good. I thought Danny (Berger) in particular had a really good game."

Junior Center Jordan Stone...

"Defense was definitely our focus after last game. We were doing really well offensively but definitely struggled defensively so that was kind of our focus all week. It was good to get out there and hold them to a low percentage. The offense seemed to work out tonight. It was good passes, everything worked out well. It was just coming out. We were all excited for the game. We definitely wanted to play better this time, and it turned out well for us."

Junior Guard Danny Berger...

"It felt good out there. I felt relaxed, and I just let the game do it's thing and take advantage of opportunities. We played good defense tonight, better than last game and things worked out. We worked a lot on defense as far as technique and the right spot to be and it showed in the game tonight. We held them to a decent percentage and did what we practiced all week."

Adams State Head Coach Louis Wilson...
"When you're in these exhibitions, really they're glorified practices. If you go in the gym and you have a bad practice, it's a wasted day. A waste is not good because you're not making progress. The positive is you get to play in game conditions. You get to see how far off you are. The reality is we had a practice today in which we did not improve. We were very much exposed in a lot of areas, and we have a long way to go. The good news is we've got six months to get there. That's as tough a night as any team I've had in four years and a lot of it was self-inflicted. We've got to do better and execute better, which I think we will. We're 15 days into practice. That's a big difference. They're very experienced, and we're very inexperienced. It was just a lot of things coming together into the proverbial perfect storm."
